Sharing open protocols and tools raises research standards and enables easier and better data sharing

Different questions need to be asked in different settings and we need all types of studies to be undertaken. What is vital, is to provide SOP’s and study materials that can be accessed and used by teams to support high-quality, rapid implementation of critical studies in a multitude of settings. We know the true power of active sharing and the impact it can have to raise standards and speed up research. There is also the added benefit of bringing standardisation and sharing solutions that are pragmatic and known to work.

Here, groups openly offer their approaches for what they set out to measure, and how, by sharing their study documentation and resources. This concept strongly focuses on sharing the process and framework for the study, with materials that reflect the context-specific nature of running a study in individual settings.
